Jason Jung on Thursday pulled off yet another upset at the New York Open, ousting seventh seed Cameron Norrie to set up a quarter-final against defending champion Reilly Opelka at Nassau Coliseum.

Jung — born in Torrance, California, but who represents Taiwan — defeated the 59th-ranked Briton 6-4, 6-4 in 1 hour, 17 minutes to reach the quarter-finals on Long Island for the second consecutive year.

The world No. 131 converted three of six break points and won 79 percent of points on his first serve to see off South Africa-born Norrie.

Jung, who is nicknamed “The Chisel” due to his ability to “file down to size” bigger-hitting opponents, felt that his fitness was letting him down at the end of last season and has worked to improve it since December last year.  [FULL  STORY8]
